Who Makes Hamden's Best Burger?

In this week's Readers' Choice contest we want you to tell us who has the tastiest, juiciest, most delicious burgers in town -- and what makes them so darn good?

 

In its purest form it's just a beef patty on a bun. But today's burgers are much more complex, with toppings that range from the classic lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup and mustard to items that include everything from bacon, mushrooms, jalapenos, avocado, chili or a fried egg. You could even get a burger made from turkey meat or bison, or a veggie one, too.

When it comes down to it, you could put just about anything on a burger. And there are some great restaurants serving some incredible burgers right here in Hamden. There's no dearth of choices for burgers here.

In this week's Readers' Choice contest, we want to know which place has the absolute best burger in town. Vote for your favorite in the poll and, most importantly, rate and review the place in our directory (by clicking on the links below) and drop a comment on this article.

Here's our starter list (let us know if we're missing anyone):

Why is there never the wording, “None of the above” in a HamdenPatch poll?

If there's someone you want me to add, just let me know and I'll include them too. Just has to be in Hamden.

Smokey's half pound cheeseburger is just about the best I've ever had. Everything there is really good.

What about Mikro Beer Bar? Why aren't they on the list?

Isn't there a new place called Wayback near Kohl's that sells burgers?

Yep...and they are pretty good! They also have fresh made potato chips AND REALLY good milkshakes!

Their burgers are okay. Better at the Meriden location. Service is too slow in Hamden.

Park Central has GREAT burgers, just in case you haven't tried them lately. Jason, from Caseus in NH, is now part of Park Central and the food is now really good!

Smokey's burgers are excellent. Onion rings also. Very impressed with this place.

Smokeys Char Grill makes the best smoked half pound cheeseburger in town by far!The flavor is out of this world and like others have said, the rest of the menu has lots to offer too. A wonderful place to snack while walking along the canal walkway.
